Another great building with good information but in this case, even when under glass/plastic cases, they are covered with years of dust and dirt so you lose the color, the texture, the beauty of each piece. What would it take to open each case, clean...More

This is in part of the old convent of San Francisco, the Museum has a nice small collection of objects, but for me the high light is the Capilla de Aranzazú, which for those of us that like the Baroque, is a fascinating place to...More

Nice little museum with some pre-Colombian artifacts from around the area and a stunningly beautiful chapel on the second floor. Free on Sundays.

Decent museum, free on sunday and wasn't too packed. Not a big place so it will be a quick visit. I probably spent 20 minutes but I rush through museums fairly quickly.

Of course if you are here as a tourist and visit museums, churches and chapels , etc. this is a must. What is different from other museums is that there are several fake(replicas) pieces you can touch through all the museum

There is a variety of exhibits from ancient modern, but all have counterparts that are touchable. The chapel is unusual and very colourful. also unusual: there is an elevator to take us oldsters up to the chapel.

As a visitor was curious to learn a bit more about this colonial city. It's worth visiting and it only takes about an hour to see it. Pity they barely have any information in English.

This was a slightly better than average regional museum, fairly well organized, a block away from Parque San Francisco, in another restored monastery. But upstairs, Whoa! The lavish gold and aqua private chapel Capilla de Aranzazu, in high Churrigueresque style. Don't you just love surprises?!

The beautiful park outside is surpassed by the Neo-Classical architecture of this building - It's simple at times, subtle at others, and then just opulent when you least expect it. It's gorgeous. Oh yeah, and it's a museum, too, but it's all pretty basic stuff...More
